What data do we collect?

We collect data that helps us contact you, solve your legal problem and personalise our content for you.

We collect contact details like your name, phone number, email and address. The data we collect to personalise content for you includes job titles, images, opinions and how you use our website. We also ask about your work, business situation and credit card details. If we have no reason to have your data anymore, we will anonymise or delete it.

How do we collect data?

When you reach out to us through the phone, use our website or open our emails, you are telling us about yourself.

This can be through online enquiry forms or questionnaires when you download our free resources.

We also use software like cookies to tell us how you use our website and how we can help you. Cookies are tiny digital identifiers that are automatically stored on your computer. These help us personalise our service to you, and can be turned off or deleted at any time through your browser settings.

What do we do with this data?

We will only use your data to give you the best legal service, which comes down to communicating with you and advertising to you. This includes giving advice, asking for feedback and marketing. We might contact you through emails, phone calls, sms and mail.

When necessary, we share your data with groups that we work with. Companies like Google Analytics and Marketo work with us to collect, process and use your data.
